I have a Maytag Neptune front load washer and dryer. Approx

Resolved Question:

I have a Maytag Neptune front load washer and dryer. Approx 5 years old. One of the flanges on the inside of the dryer drum has come loose. It looks like the hardware has fallen into the cabinet. Is this something I can attempt to repair on my own? Or should I hire a repair company to handle?

Don't have the model number with me at work. But yes, I am talking about the paddle.

take screws # XXXXX out of the front panel (both sides) then pull the panel # XXXXX out from the top, it will come off and lift it off the bottom clips, then you will see the screws holding the top down, they hold the clips #2 on this diagarm, then you can lift the top and get at the holes that hold the baffle in, thanks Bryan,
